  5. 5 Transforming the Future: Advertising & the IoT Era Hilton Austin Downtown, Salon K 12.30am-1.30pm Pop culture’s portrayal of the future, and how advertising fits into it, is endless. But Back to the Future and others aside, what is advertising’s destiny? Brian Wong, Kiip CEO, discusses the role marketing will take in the Internet of Things (IoT) era. While breaking this down by strategy, not screens, Brian introduces “connected moments”. These are instances when brands can add value across connected devices in our houses, cars and on our bodies. Listeners learn actionable tips for real-time engagement to create mutually beneficial, brand-consumer relationships. The result: advertising people actually invite into their lives.
  6. 6 Opening Keynote: Casey Gerald Austin Convention Centre, Ballroom D 2.00pm-3.00pm _ga=1.104625792.1836092439.1452098532 Named one of the “Most Creative People in Business” by Fast Company he has emerged as an influential voice on the awakening that is changing business and society — making purpose the new bottom line in our lives and work.

His Harvard Business School commencement speech hit a nerve online and began a larger conversation around his ideas and work. Gerald argues that there is a new playbook for change. That doing good over doing well will wake a dying world from it’s slumber and bring about a recalibration driven by creativity and the people who practice it. In short, it's time to give a damn.
  7. 7 The Rise of the Visual Strategist Hilton Austin Downtown, Salon G 3.30pm-4.30pm As the need to visually communicate explodes, organisations of all sizes face the need for new staff, tools and mindsets. This goes far beyond an Instagram account manager, into the heart of an organisations mission, brand, legacy and value. But in most cases, the approach to visual narrative is ad hoc, at best. Solving this problem will require an integrated approach that is grounded in education, technology, business needs, and an understanding of visual semiotics. Dennis Keeley has been addressing this from the education side, while Peter Krogh has been working on technical development. They will discuss the new role of the corporate visual strategist and the opportunities it presents. Speaker: DENNIS KEELEY CHAIR OF PHOTOGRAPHY & IMAGING Art Centre College of Design
  8. 8 Culture: The New Currency of Retail Hilton Austin Downtown, Salon K 5.00pm-6.00pm Everything a consumer could possibly need is available (often at a better price) at the click of a button. Retail has officially gone digital. But unofficially, the shop experience is still indispensable. One by one, ecomm powerhouses are returning to the ground. Modern retailers are prioritising hubs for culture and community over boxes to transact sales. Traditional retail spaces are no longer being treated as just a place to sell product. Instead retailers are creating an environment where brand values can be experienced and shared with like-minded peers. The brick-and-mortar experience is transforming into a cultural hot spot for building community. Speakers: RICK BADGLEY, VP OF RETAIL TOMS LACEY NORTON, HEAD OF RETAIL Kit and Ace

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) systems could revolutionize how marketers interact with consumers and how shoppers experience products. Our panel of pioneering marketers will discuss how they and their customers are exploring virtual space. Is this the dawn of “Retail Everywhere”? Will consumers strap on your store to walk the aisles virtually or shop with friends who are thousands of miles apart? Are VR test drives in the car showroom (or in your living room?) going to make for more informed purchases? Will AR make live shopping as data-rich as online browsing? Speakers: ERIC OLIVER, DIR/DIGITAL MKTG The North Face TORSTEN WINGENTER, HEAD OF DIGITAL INNOVATIONS Lufthansa German Airlines
  11. 11 Designing Experiences Offline and Online w/AirBnB JW Marriott, Salon FGH 12.30pm-1.30pm More and more companies who create online experiences are finding the way people experience their "product" takes place in the real world.

  13. 13 Tech Diversity: Why We’re Still Talking About It Austin Convention Centre, Room 18ABCD 3.30pm-4.30pm _ga=1.107820034.1836092439.1452098532 In 2014, we started quantifying the lack of diversity in the tech industry and realised just how miserable a baseline we were at. Yet, despite all the fancy announcements and funding initiatives, the numbers are not moving up and to the right. Women still make up less than 20% of engineering departments, while Blacks and Latinos remain in the low single digit percentages in both tech and non-tech roles. Why are we still talking about this? Why does diversity even matter? What exactly are the roots around our diversity dilemma, and how are we going to tackle them? What can you do as a founder, investor or employee? And what can you do as a woman, underrepresented minority or ally? Learn what you can do to help fix the broken state of our industry with Pinterest engineer Tracy Chou as she brings you Tech Diversity 101: Everything You Wanted to Know but Were Too Embarrassed to Ask!

Speakers: ALEX CIRILLO, FOUNDER Big Vision Empty Wallet/Big Vision Creative KESILA CHILDERS, VP OF DIGITAL MEDIA Bunim/Murray Productions
  15. 15 The Secret Science of Happiness JW Marriott, Salon D 5.00pm-6.00pm We place a lot of emphasis on interactions, but are they the most effective way to create loved experiences? After rigorous studies of the idea of happiness — from psychology to philosophy, cognitive neuroscience to behavioural economics — we arrived at a whole new framework for experience innovation. The secret to customer loyalty isn’t just about being in the moment. In fact, it’s much more about anticipation and memories. Join Lippincott, Disney and Candy Crush to learn 9 strategies for designing emotionally powerful, loyalty-building customer experiences. Some are counterintuitive, others almost counterproductive, but all are rooted in the serious science of happiness. Speakers: BRUCE VAUGHN, CHIEF CREATIVE EXEC AT WALT DISNEY IMAGINEERING The Walt Disney Company ELIZABETH CUTLER, CO-FOUNDER & CHIEF CREATIVE OFFICER SOULCYCLE

  17. 17 The New Web Typography Austin Convention Centre, Room 10AB 9.30am-10.30pm Most designers think the goal of typography is clarity: to give as unambiguous and uncluttered a vessel for the message being presented to help create understanding. But what if they are wrong? What if better understanding does not come though simplicity of design, but rather by introducing controlled complexity? Jason Cranford Teague reads from his new book "The NEW Web Typography," about new ways of viewing the importance of design that can help aid readers in understanding and remembering what they are reading, not just speed through it.
  18. 18 Rodney Brooks in Conversation with Nick Thompson Austin Convention Centre, Ballroom D 11.00am-12.00pm _ga=1.191328298.1836092439.1452098532 Rodney Brooks, the founder of Rethink Robotics, and Nicholas Thompson, editor of, examine the current state of robotics and A.I.

They will discuss current concerns about the dangers of artificial intelligence, and the ways that robots and A.I. could potentially change the nature of warfare. Dr. Brooks will also describe his decades of research into this field and his suggestions for policies that will best help humanity handle the changes that recent advances in robotics and A.I. are bringing about.
  19. 19 What the Ethics? Ethics of Data Decision Making Hilton Austin Downtown, Salon H 11.00am-12.00pm Many professions have their code of ethics. Medicine has the Hippocratic oath, the military has the Uniform Code of Military Justice even pirates had the Pirate code of the Brethren to systematise actions and guide the decision making process. It is high time that data science, analytics and data trades more broadly have an ethical code as well. However, unlike the examples above, data trades do not have time to develop this code of ethics. This panel will explore data, ethics and decision making in three contexts: subject understanding and the re-humanization of data, search as algorithmic/human interaction and frameworks for classifying and understanding data-centric decision making. Speakers: SUDHIR VENKATESH, WILLIAM B RANSFORD PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY Columbia University TIM RICH, DIR OF DATA SCIENCE Publicis North America
  20. 20 Making Epic Sh*t Austin Convention Centre, Room 18ABCD 12.30pm-1.30pm _ga=1.96818079.1836092439.1452098532 Traditional approaches to corporate R&D often result in evolutionary, not breakthrough, innovations. Yet breakthrough innovations, sustained over time, are critical for success. Business leader and product innovator, Google ATAP’s Regina Dugan will talk about the discipline of breakthrough innovation, its potential to transform industries and help us make what we love…from storytelling made uniquely for mobile, micro gesture sensors, digital fabrics, and next- generation mobile platforms that create an open hardware ecosystem.

But can travel websites move beyond top ten lists and gauzy food porn? Can you build an audience while talking about the world as it really exists, with all its heartache and idiocy and occasional triumphs? Anthony Bourdain—writer, raconteur, host of CNN’s Part Unknown— became a partner in Roads & Kingdoms, a digital media startup based in Brooklyn and Barcelona, in 2015 to help shape what comes next. He talks food, fear and the future of travel media with Roads & Kingdoms co- founder Nathan Thornburgh.

Today, identity is a convergence of 3 dimensions: Personal, national & digital. Tech and culture have transformed identity into a medium of exchange. In a connected world, context is essential for meaningful interactions and user experiences. From social media and the sharing economy — to VR and autonomous cars — the future of the human race is being shaped by hackers and painters. And everyone has a role to play. Sprinklr's Director of Experience Design, Esteban Contreras, will describe what identity and the chemistry of experience mean for brands, startups and society.
